    Agreed! Durham is my insurance and I know they are notoriously difficult for insurance and clearing people
    Good thing you're not gonna have to deal with that then 😜

    It's good to keep a little of yourself back though. To have a philosophical approach to results. My sister missed an Oxbridge offer by 5 marks and was devastated. I've learned a lot from that. I'm going to hope that life has a funny way of guiding me. And trust the process. ☺

    Ah, that must have been awful for her! Yeah, I understand. I'm trying to have a philosophical approach as well. I'd like to think everything happens for a reason. I used to believe strongly in that mantra when I was younger.

    I try! We're only on this planet once and I want to make the most of it by doing what makes me happy and making something of my passion(s). I can tell you're going to do fantastic yourself. You have an admirable outlook on life and I hope to see you in October

    Also got Durham here as my insurance. Thankfully it's been confirmed as an unconditional because i already got 3 A's in November. Just need to prayyyy that I get my 2 A*'s in these retakes to meet my offer. Anyone else here writing CIE exams?

    A brief question about insurance choices: I'm still undecided as to whether I'll attend Imperial or one of two non-UK unis if I miss my Cambridge offer; do I have to be absolutely certain about this before I put Imperial as my insurance or can I withdraw my insurance choice later?

    Good luck to everyone still awaiting their exams - you will be fine

    according to what I understand, if you put Imperial as your insurance choice and you miss your firm offer, then it is automatically confirmed on UCAS that you will go to Imperial, assuming you then meet the conditions of your insurance offer. However, if you change your mind you must call their admissions department up and withdraw your application.

    Thank you! So withdrawing my application would be possible up to UK results day? (I'm deciding as soon as possible, just asking for clarification)

    You can withdraw any time up until you actually start at the university. Just be careful about any financial commitments such as nonrefundable deposits for accommodation.

    My first exam is in about 15 hours

    Nervous, but once I get "in the zone" after writing for a bit, hopefully I'll be fine.

    Good luck guys!!

    I'm sure you'll both smash these exams :-)

    I can't sleep I'm so nervous and mine isn't until Friday!

    Im just so scared to make a stupid mistake, but I need sleep to revise and to do well. But I just can't sleep!

    It's not that I can't do or meet the demands... it's just I have no faith in myself :lol:

    Good luck guys you'll ace it! My first one is Wednesday (Maths) and I'm so nervous. I thought my exam nerves the last 2 years (GCSE and AS) were bad enough but this is a whole new level.
